Dow Drop 3-9-20

NEW YORK, NY - Stocks tumbled on Monday morning as investors braced for the economic fallout from the spreading coronavirus, while a oil price war is adding to the anxiety.

According to CNBC, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tanked more than 1,800 points at the open, while the S&P 500 plunged 7%. The massive sell-off triggered a key market circuit breaker in morning trading, which halts trading for 15 minutes.
